Viking Optical

It has been our privilege to be the optics supplier to RSPB for over 20 years. In that time we have overseen a massive increase in the range and quality of binoculars and telescopes on offer both in reserve shops and at numerous 'in the field' demonstration days all over the UK whilst at the same time providing great value for money.
Stuart Gillies, our Edinburgh shop manager - "As an RSPB member of over 30 years and a former contract warden, I find it particularly satisfying working for a company so committed to habitat and species conservation".

We believe that the RSPB HD binocular range are amongst the best value and quality outside the most expensive, top end models on the market today.
